"We need to replace (4) Green Giant Arborvitae and (1) Needlepoint Holly, which died due to being planted too low. We need to move Morning Light Miscanthus grasses" out and space properly. We need to move loropetalum out and space properly. We need replant (9)
Hollies and space them out properly as well as straighten them up too. Additional fill dirt is required to fix grade of bed and level off. We're in essence starting over with a certified arborist professional landscaper.

"First service front plants were missed, but backyard was done fine and plants were trimmed fine. They were not trimmed that much though so service was needed again" to fix issue. When service contacted me to schedule next appointment I brought this to his attention. Please note the one I talked to did not actually do the service so I showed with pictures what I wanted done. I was told everything would be taken care of which was not. The front was again not even trimmed ( I can provide pictures) and there was a tree that had fallen over that I asked to be fixed. The person restrained it with only 2 lines at 90 degrees which accomplished very little and it had fallen over with the next strong wind. I was then contacted the other day to again have a service done and I stated I would gladly have it done again but asked if the issues I had could be fixed. I again provided pictures to the one who scheduled and was told I should look for service elsewhere and that he was sure the next company could do a better job. I have gotten my neighbors landscaper to continue service. He has already started and pointed out issues in irrigation system etc.

How to Get Rid of Springtails

One of the most effective ways to control springtails is to dry out the infested area. Springtails require a high-moisture environment to breed and thrive, living mostly off of algaes that grow in moist conditions. They will either leave the infested area or die out. If there is an infestation that cannot be controlled by drying out the infested area, use an appropriately labeled insecticide with a residual time These will typically be a liquid concentrate form, a wet-able powder form, or a dust product.  DO NOT APPLY UNTIL AREAS ARE DRY.  If area will not dry naturally, use Corn Starch to soak-up any lingering moisture and otherwise 'steer' any rain water or irrigation away from area.

 

Also, if there is a noticed springtail infestation around the perimeter of the structure, use the insecticide to do a barrier treatment and apply corn starch to reduce or eliminate moisture. Caulk and seal all cracks and crevices and inspect potted plants before they are brought into the house.

I would talk to your local lawn and garden supply store (or mill and feed) - NOT a box store or hardware store. There are also selective grass control chemicals. YOu can research this by Googling using search string      "Tall Fescue Control" - there are lots of articles by the USDA and individual state cooperative extension services.

There is a treatment called chlorsulfuron TFC (Tall Fescue Control) that will do this - it worked for me in western New York, but took 3 years to finish out all the tall fescue. It may now be limited to use by commercial applicators - pretty potent stuff. Can yellow bluegrass or make it phytosensitive, but our looked OK during treatment because the TFC was applied in the fall for best results, and our lawn was dormant till spring anyway.

Tall fescue can also be controlled by real short mowing, but only in areas where the bluegrass is dominant and really thrives so will eventually crowd out the trimmed fescue, but you may be too far north for that.

It was excellent. The service was wonderful. He and his crew did a great job. They came out several times and did a variety of jobs over the last two weeks. Everything looks fantastic. He was very fair and honest and I will certainly use his services in the future.

Called and left a message with my name and contact information asking for a call back for an estimate on annual lawn care. Did not receive a call in 48 hours.
I would not recommend Grass Groomer if you want a timely response.

Originally left a message for
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. He returned my call that same day and set up a time to come take a look at our yard. At that initial appointment, work, date, and cost were agreed upon.
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew arrived on the scheduled date, precisely on time and immediately began to work. Very professional. Very thorough. Both the front and back yard look great now. With the amount of hours needed and the degree of thoroughness provided, the cost seemed very reasonable. I'll definitely recommend B & G Landscaping to all my friends and will call

again if I need other yard services.

I couldn't have been more pleased. The
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
appeal has been restored to the front of the house. The back yard is refreshed and ready for spring. The crew dragged quite a lot of yard debris to the
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and managed to do so without leaving a
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. An overgrown and mostly bare evergreen shrub was cut own to the ground and treated to keep it from growing back. An overgrown Holly was pruned back and revealed Azaleas I didn't know were there. It seems every leaf and straw of pine was removed from the grass! The yard looks better than it ever has. I should ignore it more often! Well worth the (reasonable) price. And the crew cleaned up after themselves as well. Great service! Oh - and the crew made sure the one spot where my dogs can escape was adequately barricaded before they left. I even received an email asking me to check the spot just to be sure. Hard workers AND dog lovers!

I have a small but challenging driveway that borders the

Very prompt, very professional and went the extra mile. Even went into our back neighbor's yard to remove leaves that had blown there with the power blowers. We would absolutely use their services again. They paid attention to detail and were very careful with the emerging tulips and daffodil bulbs. They came out to do an estimate for free and we plan to use them in the future to trim some of our boxwood bushes. The owner
Waukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his two helpers were on time that morning and finished the whole job in one day.
